center on the latest. janice? can you hear us? janice? okay, we do not have anyone, i will pick up on that but we will go over to how the weather will translate to what going on in the polls this is a tomorrow development, most of the country enjoying very good weather, parts of wisconsin, florida, not so much, but, generally, the rule of thumb on this is, if the weather is good, advantage democrats. they are more inclined to go to the polls and less so when the weather is bad. that is the old saying. do you buy that? >>guest: i do, the voter intensity is on romney's side. so, more of the romney supporters are willing to stand in line in bad weather, wisconsin and florida obviously battleground states, so, having good weather across the country is an advantage for obama but having some rain in wisconsin and florida could help romney. they used to rain in florida but that is it. the enthusiasm is on the g.o.p. side. >>neil: you talk about usually voting and versus later voting with better than 30 million americans having already voted and that changes the cram ma. significantly so?

they were on top of it and people getting used to the long lines, and it could have nothing to do with the president or the gaffe they are pissed and when that happens and they are waiting in the long lines and they say both of you said things are getting better and we are on top of this, it does not look like being on top of everything. >>guest: the whole country was crying out for staten island and the jersey shore and that is a national phenomenon and our hearts and prayers are with them. >>neil: thank you. i stress, folks, it comes down to a power issue. when you do not have juice or electricity as is the case in these areas, and new jersey, two-thirds of the state still in the dark and three out of four service stations without access to power that is the inside story on this, the headline, the big image is that, people waiting online, getting very, very restless, very angry and the political leaders saying we are on top of this, and kumbayas and high five's these people want to show a certain digit but it is not a high five. till you finish your vegetables.

of the economy and only because of that. >>stuart: art laffer, a pretty grim picture but thanks for joining us. now, we are fair and balanced, new democrat network president thinks hiking taxes on high income earners is the way to go. so, welcome back to the program, simon. we have discussed this before. you think raising taxes on high income earners is what bill clinton did in the 1990's and we have been through this before. may i raise a separate concern here for a second. under the president's own plan, we are going do get a total debt of $20 trillion at the end of the second term, that is the president's own plan and that is based on optimistic thinking about economic growth down the road. are you comfortable with rolling the dice and going to $20 trillion total debt? >>guest: let's talk about the fiscal cliff because it is a down payment toward reducing the deficit over all. if we do nothing the plan congress passed last year with lots of republican votes would raise taxes on everyone and cut spending dramatically creating a massive deficit reduction land. that is what is about to happen
